Hip hop is currently one of the most popular styles of music. The face of modern hip hop is people like Lil Wayne, Eminem, Drake, and Kanye West to just name a few. All of these artists are extremely talented and have great music. Unfortunately, if you look them up on Spotify almost every song by these artists are explicit. Meaning they contain either foul language or sexual content. What really saddens me, is the number of kids these artists influence. Whether they realize it or not kids look up to these people and want to act like them. They are role models to kids all over the world and when they are constantly cussing and talking about sex, drugs, and violence, kids start to think these things are ok.
My goal is to give some alternative artists that will give some positive uplifting lyrics to not just kids but adults as well. Everyone has real struggles in this life and need some encouragement in their life. I want to give people this encouragement through music with that goal in mind. There are a lot of artists like this out there, you just have to look. I have found an excess of talented artists and have picked a few of my favorites that I would like to share with you.
These artists believe that their music can and is making a difference in people’s life and so they strive to make their music with this goal in mind. However, just because these artists are not very well known in this world, doesn’t mean they don’t have great music. I can assure you that their beats are on par with people like Eminem and Drake. In my opinion, any of these artists I will share with you could very well out rap them.
